MDJ’s 2 fave baits right now

Here’s what he’s doing right now:

> The Bill Lewis StutterStep 4.0 in “ghost shad” is a bait I always have tied on during the warmer months. I like the 4.0 around docks, especially in low-light conditions. Shad will feed on the algae that grows on the floats of docks and big bass won’t be far away.

> My setup for this bait is a Kistler Mag 2 MH rod, 8:1 Cabela’s Arachnid reel and 50-lb Seaguar Smackdown braid.

> The Missile Baits D Bomb in “super bug” is one of my all-time favorites. This bait has played huge this year for me with all the high water we’ve had throughout the country. Bass are always curious about new habitat, and rising water is a great opportunity to search backwaters and new shallow habitat such as trees and bushes. I like to pick apart these shallow areas by flipping.

> My setup: 7′ 6″ H Kistler KLX rod, 7:3:1 Cabela’s Verano baitcaster, 25-lb Seaguar Flippin Fluoro, 4/0 Owner Jungle Flipping Hook and 3/8-oz tungsten weight.
